M151 SEAT ADJUSTER (Knob & Screw Type)

Post by lten1063 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 6:10 pm

I have the TAP & DIE Set with correct thread pitch. If you have one or a pair that's needs rebuilding / reconditioning I can do it if the blocks are salvageable. $50.00 each / $75.00 pair plus shipping. If the blocks and shafts not salvageable. $75.00 / $100.00 pair plus shipping. I will need the complete set up with mounting bolts and knob.

If for some reason you don't want or have no need for them send them to me.

Thanks Joe

Where in the world did you find the Acme thread taps and dies for those? LOL. Man, They are a bear to use if you are cutting new threads!

I found a custom Tap & Die manufactory. Not cheap by any means. I had to send in one of my good seat adjusters so they could get the correct size & thread pitch.
